Payments for personal services performed by filer are paid to this entity, including payments for 
television and radio hosting, syndicated columns, book authorship, board services, consulting work, 
and honoraria. Entities making such payments are reported in Part 1 to the extent filer was in a 
position associated with such an entity in 2016, 2017, or 2018; and Part 4 to the extent the entity paid 
more than $5000 for the filer's services in 2016, 2017, or 2018. In addition, each item of reportable 
intellectual property and each incidence of reportable honoraria received in 2017 or 2018 is specified 
here in Part 2 as a sub-entry to this income entry. Filer's role in the company ended upon government 
appointment; no further business is being conducted by the business and it is being wound down as a 
business entity.

Summary of Contents 


1. Filer's Positions Held Outside United States Government 

Part 1 discloses positions that the filer held at any time during the reporting period (excluding positions with the United States Government). Positions are reportable 
even if the filer did not receive compensation. 

This section does not include the following: (1) positions with religious, social, fraternal, or political organizations; (2) positions solely of an honorary nature; (3) positions 
held as part of the filer's official duties with the United States Government; (4) mere membership in an organization; and (5) passive investment interests as a limited 
partner or non-managing member of a limited liability company. 


2. Filer's Employment Assets & Income and Retirement Accounts 

Part 2 discloses the following: 

• Sources of earned and other non-investment income of the filer totaling more than $200 during the reporting period (e.g., salary, fees, partnership share, 
honoraria, scholarships, and prizes) 

• Assets related to the filer's business, employment, or other income-generating activities that (1) ended the reporting period with a value greater than $1,000 or (2) 
produced more than $200 in income during the reporting period (e.g., equity in business or partnership, stock options, retirement plans/accounts and their 
underlying holdings as appropriate, deferred compensation, and intellectual property, such as book deals and patents) 

This section does not include assets or income from United States Government employment or assets that were acquired separately from the filer's business, 
employment, or other income-generating activities (e.g., assets purchased through a brokerage account). Note: The type of income is not required if the amount of 
income is $0 - $200 or if the asset qualifies as an excepted investment fund (EIF). 


3. Filer's Employment Agreements and Arrangements 

Part 3 discloses agreements or arrangements that the filer had during the reporting period with an employer or former employer (except the United States 
Government), such as the following: 

• Future employment 

• Leave of absence 

• Continuing payments from an employer, including severance and payments not yet received for previous work (excluding ordinary salary from a current employer) 

• Continuing participation in an employee welfare, retirement, or other benefit plan, such as pensions or a deferred compensation plan 

• Retention or disposition of employer-awarded equity, sharing in profits or carried interests (e.g., vested and unvested stock options, restricted stock, future share of 
a company's profits, etc.) 


Kudlow, Lawrence A - Page 14 




4. Filer's Sources of Compensation Exceeding $5,000 in a Year 


Part 4 discloses sources (except the United States Government) that paid more than $5,000 in a calendar year for the filer's services during any year of the reporting 
period. 

The filer discloses payments both from employers and from any clients to whom the filer personally provided services. The filer discloses a source even if the source 
made its payment to the filer's employer and not to the filer. The filer does not disclose a client's payment to the filer's employer if the filer did not provide the services 
for which the client is paying. 


5. Spouse's Employment Assets & Income and Retirement Accounts 

Part 5 discloses the following: 

• Sources of earned income (excluding honoraria) for the filer's spouse totaling more than $1,000 during the reporting period (e.g., salary, consulting fees, and 
partnership share) 

• Sources of honoraria for the filer's spouse greater than $200 during the reporting period 

• Assets related to the filer's spouse's employment, business activities, other income-generating activities that (1) ended the reporting period with a value greater 
than $1,000 or (2) produced more than $200 in income during the reporting period (e.g., equity in business or partnership, stock options, retirement plans/accounts 
and their underlying holdings as appropriate, deferred compensation, and intellectual property, such as book deals and patents) 

This section does not include assets or income from United States Government employment or assets that were acquired separately from the filer's spouse's business,
